organized but BORING class, lecture wasn't that helpful but attendance is mandatory so... ugh. But usually you ain't got much of a choice in taking any chinese classes since there's only one teaching anyways...

Not too much homework.

Even though Professor Tao is very esteemed and is head of the Chinese department, his class is unexpectedly very manageable and fun. His powerpoints are well-organized and easy to understand. Professor Tao also includes a lot of interesting videos that go along with his lectures. Midterm and final are also very easy. There is one presentation at the end of the quarter, but he and Daisy (Su Laoshi) are nice graders.

Pop quizzes are easy and open-note and open-book. I came out of the class feeling like I learned a lot about Chinese linguistics. His class proves that you don't have to give a lot of work to students for them to learn something.
